Bad Batch??? 12/12/2007 12:14:57 PM

Pros: Price, RAID, Processor support

Cons: have ran into 4 DOA, I have certified RAM, Dual Core processor, that I know works but never boots, or even POSTs.

Overall Review: I've bought this mobo in the past, I have 4 that work fine, but the newer one's I've bought seem to be DOA. I dont know anymore about MSI I've wasted alot of time trying to get one that works. Going with ASUS now.

Troubles 10/20/2007 9:47:43 AM

Pros: When it works, it is fast and it can scream if it is happy... my neighbor next door has one too and his is awesome.

Cons: Fried my brand new power supply on first power up. Second new power supply works fine, but there is no 5V power on the board, the fan indicators don't work, the built in sound mixer doesn't work either and now the bios won't recognize a usb keyboard. Every few months, something non essential seems to break.

Overall Review: Homebrew system with 6300 C2Duo overclocked from 1.83 to 2.1, msi X1600 ATI video. Ballistix CAS 2 2GB 667 MHz ram. Decent system, but somewhat hobbling along.

GO Asus or Giga 9/4/2007 1:27:52 PM

Pros: Cheap

Cons: Everything about the board, the bios were flaky, the MSI support doesn't exist, always got a critial failure error when adjusting the settings for ram to recognize 800mhz from the default 677.

Overall Review: Seriously look into the P35 boards or the x38's when they come out mid/late sept

not having good luck with this 8/30/2007 1:02:26 PM

Pros: When it works, it works beautifully.

Cons: Fist mobo died after 6 months (was not OC'd or modified in any way). Had to buy new one since past the 30 day replacement period. New one arrived DOA. Gonna have to RMA it and hope the 3rd one works.

Overall Review: If the 3rd one comes in DOA I definitely will not be replacing it with same product. Husband has this same mobo for 9 months now and has had no problems so far.

Skip this Mobo seriously 8/1/2007 1:42:24 PM

Pros: At the time was a cheaper alternative

Cons: junky BIOs, junk OC capability and unstable OC's on RAM had to tweak with alot of Bio's to get things to work without Errors and random restarts. Now its calmed down but basically because I hate being on the machine.

Overall Review: I went on a tomshardware review of the current 975 boards and this one was the higher rated board...at the time neither 975s were great but wish i would have went Asus or Gigabyte. I am currently looking at a P35 board which is the way to go.
